As we celebrate Palm Sunday, we prepare for Holy Week and the solemn events leading up to our Lord's crucifixion on Good Friday and glorious resurrection on Easter Sunday. As a Catholic school, our teachers have the distinct privilege of structuring assignments, retreats, and activities to reflect the paschal mystery throughout the season of Lent.
This Monday each homeroom will experience our outdoor Stations of the Cross with their teacher and classmates. On Holy Thursday, we will begin our morning with the 6th graders performing the annual SJB Passion Play. Each class will then spend the remainder of the day in grade-level Lenten retreats, allowing the students to gain a solid understanding of the true meaning of Easter and God's plan of salvation.
Please remember we do not have school on Good Friday or Easter Monday; school will resume on Tuesday, April 19th. I pray you all have a blessed Triduum and Easter and enjoy the extended weekend!
